SLC-ex Ross Stripling hurls no-hitter for A&M

Southlake Carroll product Ross Stripling threw the 11th no-hitter in Texas A&M history Saturday, leading the seventh-ranked Aggies to a 1-0 home win over San Diego State.

The senior, who was scheduled to participate in graduation ceremonies Saturday, allowed only a fifth-inning walk while striking out seven. He threw 106 pitches.

Stripling, a ninth-round pick by the Colorado Rockies in the 2011 draft, improves to 9-2 with a 2.36 ERA.

It was A&M's first no-hitter since Zach Jackson's seven-inning gem against Texas A&M-Corpus Christi on Feb. 14, 2004. Matt Blank had the last nine-inning no-hitter for the Aggies, accomplishing the feat against Texas-Pan American on Feb. 6, 1996.
